MARTIN ODEGAARD NEW CONTRACT WAGES COMPARED TO DECLAN RICE, BUKAYO SAKA AND ARSENAL TEAMMATES.
Three weeks have passed since the Premier League teams’ transfer market officially closed, but Arsenal has recently completed another important transaction.
Martin Odegaard, the club’s captain, just signed a new five-year contract at Arsenal that would keep him there through 2028. Although it may not be as exciting as a new £105 million signing, Mikel Arteta and company have successfully completed a crucial piece of transfer business.
The Norwegian will undoubtedly receive a pay raise as part of the new agreement, and you cannot claim that he is unworthy of one.
Odegaard’s salary now more accurately matches his position in Arteta’s team.

Odegaard committed to the Gunners in 2021 and signed a permanent five-year deal with Real Madrid for roughly £30 million. The second half of the previous campaign saw the Norwegian on loan in north London.
Odegaard’s contract called for him to be paid £115,000 per week at first, but since then, many players have signed larger contracts. The midfielder had only the tenth-highest salary at Arsenal prior to reaching an agreement on a new deal.

Odegaard’s new deal would reportedly increase his pay to £200,000 per week as a result of his excellent performances, making him one of the club’s highest paid players. The maestro will earn £10.4 million in a single year.
At the Emirates Stadium, there are still three players who make a lot more money than Odegaard.
Salary information for Martin Odegaard compared to his teammates at Arsenal Odegaard’s new salary places him on par with Thomas Partey as the club’s fourth-highest earner. Recent additions Kai Havertz (£280,000), Gabriel Jesus (£265,000), and Declan Rice (£240,000) all make more money than the former Madrid player.
If manager Arteta is unable to maximize the potential of the former Chelsea player after his £65 million transfer, Havertz will undoubtedly cost Arsenal money because it will be difficult to off-load his weekly salary from the books should they ever need to sell.
Following the signing of new contracts, Bukayo Saka (£195,000) and William Saliba (£190,000) also obtained comparable wage increases and now make almost the same as Odegaard. Gabriel Martinelli and Aaron Ramsdale have also signed new contracts with the team this season.
